In response to the global coronavirus outbreak, St Peter’s School, York has implemented a strict visitor policy to safeguard the health and wellbeing of the whole school community. Following instructions from the government, the school site will be closed to pupils (apart from children of key workers) from the end of the day on Friday 20 March with no indication given of when that situation will change. We ask that all non-essential visitors also stay away from the school at this time. If your visit is essential, please read our visitor policy before you visit the school.

DJI 0128The St Olave’s School campus is situated on Queen Anne's Road off Bootham, just outside the ancient city walls of York. It is a convenient and central location which offers pupils easy access to one of England’s most beautiful cities.

The School benefits from sports pitches, tennis courts, 47 acres of grounds, an indoor swimming pool, and a boat house on the banks of the River Ouse.

These facilities are shared by all three schools; Clifton, St Olave’s and St Peter’s. The schools form a loose triangle on three sides of the grounds; close enough to feel connected but far enough apart to maintain their distinct characters. Progressing through the schools, this mix of familiarity and change helps provide stability and continuity to a child, while helping them grow.

The St Olave's School boarding house, Wentworth, sits a short walk across the grounds near the Clifton School buildings.

The campus is cared for all year round by a team of dedicated groundsmen, estate managers and facilities assistants. They ensure that the campus is always well kept, secure, and functioning smoothly.
